It was Archimedes and his executive team who first figured out that – when it comes to machines – simple is better. They recognized the power of simple machines – the pulley, the lever, the axle and wheel – to change the nature of work productivity.
History has endorsed the validity of their observations. Is there an equivalent in our modern world?
Companies today function in a much more complex world than the Greeks ever imagined. Gaining an understanding and simplifying the complex is key for a new revenue reality for many companies.
Fassi Cranes, the world’s No. 2 manufacturer of cranes still has one of those original simple machines, the pulley, at the heart of every product it builds.
But Fassi is not simple – it builds 10,000 cranes per year in any one of 30,000 configurations. Processing orders from time zones around the globe was a nightmare for Fassi efficiency … until it found one modern tool for simplicity – Cincom Acquire.
Cincom Acquire empowers Fassi to quote faster and process orders error-free. Fassi has unprecedented visibility throughout its dealer chain, and its entire operations from planning through production run like never before. The result is time saved and increased revenue.
Acquire is Fassi’s modern, simple machine of choice.
Similarly, emergency equipment manufacturer E-One had complexity issues of its own. Its business was robust, but unprofitable. Acquire was introduced into its existing configure, price, quote (CPQ) practices – six months later, manufacturing lead times had been reduced by 51 percent and E-One had become profitable.
Just like Fassi, E-One discovered modern simplicity and reaped the rewards.
Fassi and E-One are examples of success through one simple tool, Cincom Acquire, that is delivered day after day to complex businesses and manufacturers.
The end result is, fittingly enough, simple: a new revenue reality unlike any other solution available in business today, from the first software system whose output is income.
